What is Breathwork?
Simply put its an active breathing meditation that gives your brain something to focus on while your physical and emotional bodies release stuck energy. It’s a bit confronting and uncomfortable at first as many of us are not used to being fully present in our bodies. When we are in our body and without the distractions of daily living, all of our unresolved wounds bubble up to the surface.
With discipline and practice this tool also allows you to work on healing emotional response patterns that are generally established in early childhood yet govern our adult lives. The breath supports creating a deeper relationship with ourselves, giving our brain a much needed rest and an opportunity to develop the relationship we have to our physical body.
The basis for this self-healing modality allows us to cultivate and elevate our ability to deeply love ourselves even when it feels really hard. You will be learning how to be your own healer every time you do breathwork.
There are many different types of breathwork (techniques vs healing) but this particular style is all done breathing through an open mouth while lying down. No previous experience required.

No matter what has drawn you to breathwork, I like for students to imagine it as a spiritual housekeeping practice that offers everything from a light dusting to an intense deep cleaning. Our “stuff” can clog our energy centers, just like a trashcan that has become overly full. It is necessary to take out the garbage on a regular basis otherwise your house will being to smell horrible and a few unwanted houseguests (aka roaches) may settle in. Make sense?
The breath is the most intimate relationship you will ever have. Without the breath there is no life.
